I've been out of dirt racing for more then 30 years and everything I learned then doesn't apply now.

Does anyone know where I can find info on doing jumps and things like that?

Thanks

That is 1 gigantic sentence.

That said, it's a known issue. Email Jconcepts on their website...they will fix you up.

You have to be more specific on what you want.

To answer your question, you line your car up and pull the throttle to jump

Best advice I can give, is go to the track and practice. Also talk to other drivers at the track and get their feedback. If you find you truck is not jumping properly, it could be a setup issues. In which case there are plenty of people on here that can help you.

How to setup for a jump?

How to land? On full throttle? Half?

Things like that.

Wheel time.....that's it....nothing people can really tell you...it's always faster to back side a landing and not flat land...as for throttle that all depends on the jump...we have a triple at our track...stock buggy you have to pin the throttle to make it....mod you just have to creep up to the transition and blip the throttle.

Just get on the track and practice as much as you can

Anyone have an idea as to how strong these waterfalls are compared to the genuine AE waterfall?

well, they are not all created the same. The ADI one is a POS. I have been using the xmomox one and the area above the battery strap broke. But i had a puffed pack with a cf strap and it was exerting upward pressure. The one I linked above looks very sturdy. Since shapeways uses the same material for all the plastic printed pieces, that one should be very durable. They are NOT as strong as the AE molded plastic water fall. BUT they are plenty strong for most people. Again, the one i linked above seems to be the most stout overall I have seen.
